NewsHour Weekend explores the struggles of job seekers with criminal backgrounds. Even years after they've served time for past criminal infractions, those applying for jobs are often unable to find work - especially in a climate of extreme job competition. And amid the Recession and grindingly slow economic recovery, those applicants are increasingly being driven into poverty. Stephen Fee reports.

NewsHour Weekend travels to Vermont to explore the growing demand for renewable energy. In what is being seen as the first in Vermont and perhaps the country, the state's largest city of Burlington recently made the switch to using 100 percent renewable energy for their electricity needs. In a state with a robust list of socially conscious achievements, the feat represents a major milestone in the growing green energy movement that boasts benefits for the environment and the economy.

KQED 9: Sun, Jan 18, 2015 -- 5:30 PM

On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend reports from Africa, where an ongoing and ambitious two-year project is underway. The mission: to count all of the elephants on the continent of Africa. The $8-million initiative called the Great Elephant census, funded by an American philanthropist, aims to save elephants through conservation efforts. But as elephant numbers continue dwindle across Africa, due in large part to poaching, researchers -- already faced with a herculean task and countries resistant to join the census -- must first establish how many they are trying to save. NewsHour's Martin Seemungal reports.

On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend travels to Belgium to explore the country's practices regarding the right to die by euthanasia. With the most liberal laws in the world governing physician-assisted suicide, which have been on the books since 2002, surveys in the country show overwhelming support for its legality. Doctors say it gives terminally ill patients experiencing constant and unbearable suffering a practical and humane way to die peacefully. But even in a country with far-reaching acceptance, controversy still remains. NewsHour's Megan Thompson reports.

    • KQED Plus OTA ? Optimistically planned maintenance: Fri 12/05 mid-morning

      (DT54.1 thru 54.5) Assuming that the weather and road conditions permit, we plan to do a bit of maintenance on our KQEH transmitter the morning of Friday 12/05… hopefully 10am-11am-ish, but could be a bit later.
